Meet B, the turtle of light. When you first see B, you notice the unique pattern cut into her shell. She is not a 'paper doll turtle' that eventually wears out. She's a real piece of work fashioned by a Master Artist. To be honest, I have to tell you this about B. She is often slow and dull in her understanding of things. Turtles from ages past are known for B' ing like that. It has taken her a long time to understand what to do with her cut outs.
Maybe you can relate to B's condition. Do you ever wonder what you are supposed to do with your cut outs? We all have them. Most of us try to cover them up, but God wants to use them.
After sitting on the log basking in the sun, B can see clearly now. She thought she wanted to look like other turtles. Their cut outs were not as noticeable as hers. She looked like she had been the target practice turtle with all of her holes. She now knows that she was B'ing shot at for years and her covering was like a paper doll turtle. It did not last. B sees her "holy" shell in a different light today. For God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness," made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. 2 Cor 4:66
A "holy" shell shines bright in dark places! You were 'Made to shine"
"B" His Girl
